Initial strength gains were examined in the context of learning a new skill. Forty female volunteers were randomly assigned to one of four groups: a bench-press training group utilizing heavy loads in its training, a bench-press training group utilizing almost no load, an alternative training group using different exercises, or a control group that did not train. Training period was 6 wk, with three training sessions per week. Emphasis was put on keeping the coordination and muscular adaptation… CONTINUE READING
